I am an MS/PhD student in the the College of Information and Computer Sciences at The University of Massachusetts Amherst. I did my undergraduate studies in Computer Science at the R.V. College of Engineering, Visvesvaraya Technological University in Bangalore, India. I am a research assistant at the Biologically Inspired Neural and Dynamical Systems Lab here at UMass where I work on developing efficient artificial intelligence systems inspired by the workings of the brain.
My research interests include studying and analyzing the interplay between cognition, social sciences and large scale data-driven AI to solve problems in areas such as mental health and education. I'm also quite interested in using Natural Language Processing to understand the subtleties of language use among people affected by different mental disorders. Here's a link to a website that I built for a hackathon along with my teammates that does text-analytics to predict what disorder a person may be suffering from based on comments entered by them about their feelings.
